Street Closures for May Day Events

Major road closures to accommodate May Day rallies and processions will affect traffic in the capitol Tuesday, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry said.

Beginning at 6 a.m. and lasting until 4 p.m., traffic will be completely blocked on the following streets: 1st Tverskaya-Yamskaya, Tverskaya, Okhotny Ryad, and Mokhovaya.

Traffic will also be limited on the embankments along the Moscow River until 1 p.m., and bridges near the Kremlin will remain closed until 4.

The streets around metro station Oktyabrskoye Polye will be closed from 11 to 4 as well.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
